@ltj_bukem at @villiageundergroundlondon

First d'n'b event in about 4 months, and the world seems a little bit lighter again. Good UK bass music is one of the few things I really miss when I'm away from London for longer periods of time.

Extra nostalgia because LTJ Bukem was my first introduction to drum n bass after I bought a "Drum n Bass Anthems" CD at a car boot sale when I was 13. I used the 170bpm drum rhythms of this weird newly-discovered genre to push me to do more sit-ups in my bedroom.

Flashback too to my first night in Village Underground 5 years ago at a dubstep night, where I first discovered that there's a sweet spot at the back of the venue on the access ramp where the bass hits every part of your body. I remember sitting down in this spot in a meditation position as intense stabs of bass coursed through every fiber of my body and exploded in my brain in a release of transcendental bliss, before jumping up to join a moshpit for a song I liked. Yesterday I found that magical spot again, and grinned like an idiot as the bass washed over me, from all angles, starting from a deep rumbling in my feet to waves hitting my chest and flowing up into my temples.

Yesterday I also met a TV producer who is interested in my webseries about party subcultures around the world. Shook off the hangover with a yoga session with an old friend. All in all a pretty serendipitous, nostalgic and life-affirming day.

Love this venue and good vibes :)
@duckford10 Please thank your mate I owe him a rave.
Fist time I've heard Bukem live for 20 years! Last time was 1997. Old man raver.
